    I think it sounds really really good, great bass and clear sound, I really wish it was in a gatefold though, I think that should be mandatory for double disc sets.

      Love this pressing. Goes to show that digital masters when done well can still sound amazing. Dead quiet. Classic Hip Hop album, it is like a time machine.

        Not familiar with the OG version but my copy sounds great. Loud and strong bass. As others have said, no surface noise. Very pleased, highly recommended!

          Agreeing with everyone on this one; it really does it a lot of justice. I was horribly disappointed in All Eyez on Me reissue but this absolutely is worth picking up.

              I will admit I was a little concerned when I saw the "Digitally Remastered" on the bottom. However, this is a flawless sounding LP. I was so impressed with how clean this record sounds. No surface noises and good balanced range.

                This press sounds amazing!! Really, I was super impressed with how good it sounds. As far as the record itself, not much to say. One of the foundations of hip-hop that is cemented into music history.

                  Is this worth picking up? Pretty disappointed with "The Day The Niggaz Took Over" and "Nuthin' But A "G" Thang" being split between 2 sides, those tracks flow together beautifully on the CD.

                    My copy is flawless. Zero surface noise, full and well balanced sound.

                      I think this press sounds good. Great classic album. I got mine at Walmart of all places. Out to get groceries and stumbled across it. I was quite surprised to see it there due to the content.
